No Expense Spared Part 1 of 2
2 Chronicles chapters 2, 3, and 4, describes the Lord’s temple being built. It is evident that there was no expense spared when it came to building it. From the beginning of this project to the very end; when the offering was given to dedicate the temple to the Lord, everything was done decent, in order, and with excellence. As representatives of Christ, we too must go the extra mile to do things in excellence as well.
Sometimes, when it comes to doing things in excellence, we may not always give it our very best. I have learned a lot about business from my husband. Everything he does is very professional and he always strives for excellence. In 2 Chronicles chapter 2, you can see that Solomon was professional in the letter he wrote to the king Tyre. The letter was basically telling the king about the temple as well as a request for some of the things that would be needed. I also noticed that Solomon wasn’t trying to get a handout or a “hook up”. He asked for what he needed and stated what he was willing to pay for it. When we do things for the kingdom of God, we too should be very professional in the way we handle business.
Chapter 3 gives us details of the actual building of the temple. And Chapter 4 describes the way the temple was furnished. There was pure gold and various precious stones used to make the temple lavish and extravagant. When we do things for God, we shouldn’t hold back. We should go the extra mile and make the things we do for God right.Posted under Bible by admin
